    Is it possible to create a reseller in WHM and have them able to create mini resellers?

    As long as you give them those abilities in the "reseller center". You can give a reseller full root abilities if you want.

    You don't need to give full root access to be able to vreate resellers. I just added that to basically say that you can allow a reseller to do pretty well anything you want to allow them to do.

    In WHM, under Server Setup, click on the link Reseller Center. You can add/edit/remove reseller privilages for a user here.

    Do you own the server (have root access) or are you a reseller selling someone else's services?

    Ah, then you wouldn't have that option. You would have to speak with your host and see what they can work out for you. Sorry. :cool:

    He is asking if WHM Resellers can create Reseller Accounts under their accounts.

    ex.

    Root > Reseller > 2nd Level Reseller > Shared

    This feature is not in WHM/cPanel.:)

    I realize what he's asking. And yes, it *is* available to him IF his host wants to grant him those kind of privilages.

    Ex:
    - His host makes his account a reseller account. (His current status)
    - His host then grants him "All Features" in the reseller setup.
    - He can now create a new account and then make it a reseller account. That reseller account now has access to their own WHM.

    I tested this out just to make sure it works.

    Now his resellers are reselling from a reseller, who resells from a host. :D

    This option you are talking about is giving the user Root Access to the server. That's why they can create Reseller Account.

    [ ] All Features (warning: root access)

    But no Host will provide Resellers this option. Resellers in this case can delete any domain and do whatever they want in the server.

    Hey, I never said it would be smart. Just that it was possible. ;)

    Everything is possible with a root access :)

    Anyway, it might be good if there is a feature that allows Resellers to create Resellers under their account (without root access)

    But fixing bugs/problems is more important.
